Our homes are built almost entirely by volunteers, both skilled and unskilled. Whether you are a construction pro or have never picked up a hammer in your life, we need your help. All the equipment and safety gear you need for the day is provided and no previous experience is necessary. You can come out and volunteer with us once or make it a recurring thing! The only requirement is that you must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer on the build site. We do accept volunteers that are 16 or 17 years old however they are not allowed to use power tools or climb on ladders. Orientations take place at the start of each shift. Volunteer shifts for individuals are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
We are currently building in North Mount Pleasant, SC until June 2023. After these homes are completed, our next build site of three homes will be in the center of McClellanville, SC.

They accept individual and group volunteers with two shift options on Mondays through Saturdays: 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. To learn more or to sign up, please visit the East Cooper Home Store Volunteer page or email their Volunteer Coordinator, Phyllis Gildea.
